A Behind the Scenes Look
If you follow along on Facebook or Instagram then you've probably seen some of the stuff we've been making out of vintage silverware. There sure are some pretty silverware patterns y'all!!!
We wanted to share photos from the backend of one of the soldered rings we made from a silverware handle, and some of the steps along the way.
This spoon had a long handle and so the long skinny area would make a great band.
We bent the entire handle into a spiral and cut the end off and put aside to make another ring later.
Next cut the loop off with a jewelers saw, notice how we're cutting two layers at once.
Tada! Now file and align the two ends.
All lined up and ready to solder!
Torch fired to solder and join together.
Next, it was on to clean up. This takes a bit of time as you want the solder join to match the rest of the ring. As you can see some solder filled the line in the middle that ran around the whole ring. We went in with our jewelers saw to add that back in.
And there you have a look into a project in the shop!
